IAS Administration Discussed in the Lords

Immigration Advisory Service Administration

The demise of the IAS is noth­ing less than cata­stroph­ic for access to justice in the city of Leeds. The firm was con­trac­ted to deliv­er fully 97.1% of all leg­ally aided asylum work in the city and over 70% of all leg­ally aided asylum advice in West York­shire. Its demise leaves Hare­hills & Chapeltown Law Centre, con­trac­ted to deliv­er just 52 cases per year, as the only leg­al aid pro­vider in Leeds.
